Happy Friday! This summer I was asked by Terry, a friend from church, to make a crib quilt for her granddaughter. So we met and chose some fabric and a pattern, and this is what we came up with. I am very happy with how nicely it turned out. Terry liked it a lot, too, when I delivered it to her today.
The granddaughter's bedroom is decorated with neutral colors and giraffes. That cute little golden giraffe in the pinwheel on the top picture very closely matches the bedroom décor. Above you can see the bottom right side block is solid yellow, but I edited the image for privacy reasons to hide the name and birthdate. Thank you, Aunt Brenda, for helping with the embroidery. It looked beautiful!
This particular pattern is called "Dapper" from the quilting book "Simply Retro" with Camille Roskelley that I am crazy about.
One more picture of the corner of the quilt against the back of the quilt which is an off-white flannel which is soft and snuggly. I quilted this using a simple free motion design with some little loops using a light yellow thread. The pinwheel sections had elongated loops. It was a lot of fun to do!
Finally, two more pictures to share with you of something else I finished this week. My daughter needed a new pencil case for school, and of course she couldn't find anything she liked in the store. I made this shark for her. Yes, it actually looks more like a fish, but it's still pretty cool. It was a free pattern I found here.
I'm liking up with Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday!
There is a lot more quilting to be done at my house. The customer quilts started coming in again which is great. I also entered two of my quilts in the Saxonburg Arts Festival Quilt Show this weekend. I'm looking forward to checking it out tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by!!
This is me...
I LOVE to quilt, and every day I must sew for my sanity!
